#96 -- Mark Rowlands, The Philosopher and the Wolf: Lessons in Love, Death, and Happiness, 244 pages.

This is a fascinating book by a philosophy professor, using his relationship with the wolf cub he raised as a launching point to consider the difference between human (or simian) consciousness and that of other animals such as wolves. He also considers morality and the meaning of life. All done in a way that is both understandable and interesting to non-philosophy folks.

#97 -- Kelley Armstrong, Frostbitten (Women of the Otherworld, Book 10), 339 pages.

Another great installment of Kelley Armstrong's series. We're back to Elena, and I really do love her. These never fail to please.
